I compiled a version of Linus' kernel 2.4.33 for CentOS 3 (RHEL 3) and found that several programs started failing with core dumps or lockups.
You can not use 2.4.33 on Centos 3 or RHL 9 systems. The base kernel for RHL-9 and RHEL-3/Centos-3 have several incompatible sections backported from the 2.5.xx kernel series to give features that were wanted but not in the 2.4 kernel. Thus you can not have the most current 2.4.xx kernel. If you are wanting to do that you will be wanting a different OS than any of the 'Enterprise' systems.
It seems to center on two different things: the clone() call, and some kind of file locking call that isn't supported ("fuserlock"?) The clone() call resulted in core dumps; the other resulted in programs receiving an unexpected "not implemented" result and entering an endless loop waiting for a positive result. Any tips? I'd like to keep the kernel current.... -- fedora-legacy-list mailing list fedora-legacy-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-legacy-list
